I think it could be either one, simply because the idea of kidnapping (and actually seeing it happen) can be frightening. The little bit of violence described can easily be done off-screen. There is no 'language'. Also, the idea of sex abuse of a child is introduced, but it not done and certainly not shown.(less)

Two Little Girls in Blue is by Mary Higgins Clark. I listened to the audio version of this book.

The adorable little twin girls, Kathy and Kelly Frawley have just turned three years old. These two girls are closer than close as twins often are. They are inseparable and have their own way of communicating known as twin talk. Their parents are now out for the evening and the girls are at home with a baby sitter. This night, though, ended in a way that is a parent’s nightmare. When they returned hom

This is the first book that I am reading by author Mary Higgins Clark. Talking about her writing style, it kind of reminded me of Sidney Sheldon books.

There are short stanzas each of few pages in different peoples perspective due to which this makes for a fast read. The constantly changing point of view in the story can be a problem for few people but I was not bothered by it.

The plot-line of the book is interesting. Identical 3 year old twins are kidnapped and there is a ransom demand.

Twins Kathy and Kelly have just celebrated their third birthday. Helping out with the celebrations is nineteen year old, Trish Logan. After the party, Trish stays back to babysit the girls as their parents have to attend a black-tie dinner party in New York. Knowing that the girls had such a big day, Trish knew once they were tucked up in bed she wouldn't hear a peep out of them.

Margaret and Steve Frawley return home from their dinner party only to find the police in their home. They are both in

I should have run screaming from this book for the title alone. What was I thinking? Cliched. Cloying. Mediocre. A real clinker. My opinion only, of course. Not sure that I have read anything else by this author, but I will be in no hurry to try another.

Blah I need to take a break from MHC. Two Little Girls in Blue wasn't a mystery at all and it was super boring!

Two little twin girls in blue get kidnapped and are being held for ransom. Now it would of been an interesting plot, if the reader wasn't aware of everything about the kidnapper and their future actions. I found that there was no mystery since we knew who had the twins and it's Mary Higgins Clark, you know that there will be a happily ever after.

I also hated how many random characters

This was the worst book I've read in a long, long time, and trust me, I've read some very bad books. Two little girls in blue, lad, two little girls in blue...

Not only were the characters flat, without any dimension or real character (imagine that, a character having character, who'd have thought!) but the story lacked a certain little something called depth. Everything I read was surface stuff, with no emotion or feeling. The whole thing sounded like you are being told what happened by a non-pa

This is not one of MHC's better books, in my opinion. It just dragged on...and on...and on...It was REALLY slow. Blech. The idea of the twins' telepathy being AS in depth and detailed as described was REALLLLLLY far fetched. Like...to the point of idiocy and laziness. This wasn't a fun mystery read even, because MHC left out SO many of the crucial details that you don't even get the opportunity to try to solve the mystery as you read, which is half of point of reading a mystery novel (at least, ...more
Stephanie (Stepping out of the Page)
Your average mystery/crime novel. I didn't find this to be thrilling, but it kept my attention well enough. I thought the idea of the telepathy to be the most interesting piece of the book. I found the author to be a bit disconnected from the characters - there was a lack of strength in the emotions that'd be associated with a crime such as abduction. I've seen lots of Higgins-Clark's books around and so I thought I'd give one a go but although I found this to be a decent enough read, I don't ha ...more

Three year old twins Kathy and Kelly were missing after their babysitter was found unconscious the evening of their birthday party
Kelly and Kathy had telepathy between them.
When the ransom was met Kelly was returned home, but not Kathy. Kelly could feel all of the pain that Kathy endured. She knew exactly were Kathy was.

Očekivano dobar krimić Mary Higging Clark. Mislim da više manje svi znamo što možemo očekivati od ove, provjerene autorice. Ovaj puta pratimo otmicu trogodišnjih blizanki iz kuta roditelja, otmičara i agenata FBI koji sudjeluju u istrazi. Zanimljivo i dinamično...jedna od onih knjiga uz koje vrijeme brzo prođe; nema tu neke velike filozofije, samo zločin i (ne baš kazna), nego istraga zločina.. ;)

Ами... очаквах нещо повече. Чувала съм само хубави неща за тази авторка, сюжетът изглеждаше обещаващ, а най-много ме привлече детайлът за феномена на връзка между близнаците. Обичам твърдо реалистичните истории, обичам и откровеното фентъзи, но в читателския ми свят винаги ще има специално място и за онези истории, които балансират на между познатото, непознатото и непознаваемото.

If I could, I'd give this 3.5 stars - definitely interesting and well-written, but not uplifting since there are some super evil characters who harm children! I wasn't sure what to expect from Higgins Clark, but I was relieved she doesn't pepper the pages with profanity. Also good was the fact that the bad guys all lose out in the end. Like I said, interesting and entertaining with a good sense of mystery - but filled with a lot of fear and tragedy.

Two Little Girls in Blue by Mary Higgins Clark is a book about the kidnapping of twin girls. Kathy and Kelly just turned three when their parents went out for dinner on the twins' birthday. Steve and Margaret Frawley, the twins parents, left the girls with a babysitter that night. When they returned, the twins were gone and the babysitter was unconscious. The Frawley's never had any enemies so who took their twins?


I think that certain parts of the story had plot holes. A plot hole like the kidna

This was my first read by M.H. Clark. Long time ago, a friend of mine recommended this book to me, but I always skipped it for no specific reason. I am glad I have finally read it, because it was truly amazing and very touching as well.

This book is not only about two girls being torn away from their family for awhile, but also about the mistery behind identical twins. It will teach you about the concepts such as identical twin connection, telepathy and their special language of communicating wit

Eh, this one was okay. I might not have finished it if I had been reading it rather than listening to it at work... But I did finish it, it didn't bore me to tears, and it did help to pass the time at work so I'll give it 2 stars for that.

Note of Warning: For the readers out there who are looking for a clean read, this is not Christian fiction-- there isn't any sex or anything, but there is bad language in this book.

3.5 not 4.0. I don't often read thrillers but I can say that this book was just "good." It took me about 70-80 pages to actually enjoy reading this book. I really loved the ending and I was surprised at the outcome of the case.

If you've read a lot of thrillers, I would recommend this to you but if you haven't, this would probably not be a book to start off with.

this was my first MHC novel and now i understand her title as the queen of suspense. This book isn't much of a mystery as the narration comes from all sides and we know who the kidnappers are immediately, but that doesn't take away from the nail biting feeling it gives you along the way. I really enjoyed how real it felt and as a parent the whole idea was just terrifying on its own, the little details were part of what really did it for me with this book though. i loved every little mistake the ...more

I appreciated the short chapters because it made it easy to find a stopping point while reading at night!

This is the story of missing twin girls told from the perspectives of their desperate parents, law enforcement officials, and the kidnappers themselves. Although the ending was predictable, I did enjoy the various insights from all of the characters. The little girls were adorable with their unique twin bond.

Overall, it was an "okay" read. It was not the best mystery but I enjoyed different a

An entertaining & easy read - just what I've come to expect from this author. While it's not on-the-edge-of-your-seat gripping it's certainly engrossing & there's enough red herrings to keep you guessing as to the identity of the Pied Piper.

I'd love to know if any twins at goodreads have experienced any psychic happenings or experienced each others pain :o)

This is a book that kept on rolling. I didn't feel like I had to go back to reread who anyone was. Although you know who commits the crime, it is still suspenseful enough to keep you interested.
